Biggest Joke in "Journalism"

"Journalism" Code of Ethics

George Stephanopoulos gets his daily 'talking points' from the Obama administration.

The biggest joke of all is in the preamble to the 'code of ethics':

Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty.

They forgot this part to that sentence:

. . . . when if fits our agenda."

Where the heck is everyone??

This has been news everywhere except the US "mainstream media" for almost 3 weeks.

The great climate change science scandal

Emails have appeared from scientists claiming to have proven man made global warming. The emails show how the proponents "cooked the books" so to speak, to cover the fact there has actually beem global cooling since 1998.

The Grand Forks Herald even ignores the story, but maybe they are waiting for the AP to send them the story. The AP is sorta like the Grand Forks Info Center where reporters can get their story without actually having to do any research on their own.

An outspoken Herald blogger, The City Beat is a big believer of man-made global warming, but I wouldn't expect him to mention it anyway. He claims he only has time to cover the city and the university so we won't expect anything soon until he runs out of things and mentions his stands on politics and global warming again.

Ain't this the truth

If a *conservative* doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a *liberal *doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a *conservative* is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a *liberal* is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
If a *conservative* sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy.
If a *liberal * he wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.
If a *conservative *is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a *liberal* is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
If a person of color is *conservative*, they see themselves as independently successful.
Their *liberal *counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.
If a *conservative* is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A *liberal* wonders who is going to take care of him.
If a *conservative* doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
*Liberals* demand that those they don't like be shut down.
If a *conservative* is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A *liberal *non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it’s a
foreign religion, of course!)
If a *conservative *decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may
choose a job that provides it.

A *liberal* demands that the rest of us pay for his.
If a *conservative *slips and falls in a store, he gets up, laughs and is embarrassed.
If a *liberal *slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he's in labor and then sues.

Al Sharpton lies about Rush Limbaugh

Sharpton's radio show was the stage he used and he is bragging about how he ruined Rush's attempt at buying a portion of the Rams NFL team.

Al Sharpton’s platform for his assault on Rush Limbaugh’s NFL ownership bid was the National Action Network (NAN), which is bankrolled by corporate America.

The following companies were identified this year by NAN as “sponsors”: American Honda, Anheuser Busch, Colgate-Palmolive, Comcast, Entergy, Ford Motor Company, Home Depot, Johnson & Johnson, Macy’s, PepsiCo, Pfizer and Wal-Mart. Sponsorship reportedly cost $50,000.

NLPC is asking these companies to end their support for Sharpton and NAN.

Pretty much sums up the Obama Administration

Got this in an email and it's pretty much represents the Obama administration to date.

Let me get this straight - - - - -

A clunker at 15 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 800 gallons a year of gasoline.

A greenie at 25 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses 480 gallons a year.

So, the average clunker transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.

They claim 700,000 vehicles were sold under the clunkers plan – so that's 224 million gallons / year.

That equates to about 5.33 million barrels of oil (using 42 gal barrels which is the oil industry measurement).

Now, 5 million barrels of oil is just about ¼ of one day's US consumption.

And, 5.33 million barrels of oil costs about $400 million dollars at $75/bbl ($399.75 million to be precise).

So, we all contributed to spending $3 billion of tax dollars for clunkers to save $400 million.

Exactly how was that a good deal???

And we want congress to run our health care???

Last night, Obama stated that he would not approve any health care bill that would worsen our debt. With the number crunchers he has....perhaps he lied about more than giving Illegal immigrants health care? (I know I have read significant portions of HR3200 that don't match what he says!)

And let's see, there are supposedly 46 million uninsured people he is worried about getting covered. Wow, that's a lot of people to cover. Let's forget about the ones that get converted to the government run program for this exercise and look only at the supposedly uninsured numbers.

And they say it's only going to cost $900Bn over 10 years? Really?

Some simple math:

$900bn/10 year is $90bn per year.

Now divide that by 46 million people, and you come out with just under $2,000 medical care spent on each person PER YEAR.

Now this $2,000 a year is going to supposedly cover all of these 46 Million people for prescriptions, medicines, doctor visits, emergency room visits, x-rays, MRIs, surgeries, long term care stay in hospitals for $2,000 per person per year! Such a deal!

Considering we have an aging baby boomer population, and these numbers don't even take into consideration inflation...

And you say it's only going to cost us ONLY $900Bn over 10 years?




And don't even get me going on the bank bailouts with billions into bonuses for bad performance, or even worse, the auto industry takeover where billions of dollars of shareholder and bondholder wealth was wiped out so the companies could be turned over to the unions! Didn't bondholders (aka widows and orphan's funds) used to be considered preferred debt? You know, protect the widows and orphans? Guess the widows weren't union members!
